When I decided that I would commit to the #inktober2016 challenge, I felt that I would find unexpected blessings in doing it.
And I have!
I decided that I would use it as an opportunity to generate ideas for miniature tapestries to weave on my tiny Thumbelina loom LINK (click the link to see more of what I have done with the Thumbelina loom)
And, that has really sparked all kinds of inspiration for me 🙂 (I’ll be sharing more about that later)
Here is today’s Inktober drawing, and, yes, Thumbelina snuck into the picture, too….
I’m still playing with my Derwent Inktense Blocks. I think I may have to buy a larger set with more colors…. I love these ones, but would like more options….
This is a fun and inspiring challenge, and I recommend it if you feel the impulse to make your drawing practice a daily habit.
Some of the collateral blessings that I have experienced because of the challenge?
Well, challenges like this create conversations that can lead to new discoveries, the sharing of information about favorite websites, materials, equipment and so much more.
I am enjoying these conversations and inspirations so much!
